We can attempt to teach the things that one might imagine the earth would teach us: silence, humility, holiness, connectedness, courtesy, beauty, celebration, giving, restoration, obligation and wildness.

And now we have Tuesday friends

Ahh week day friend... in Denver we had our Thursday friends, who we still love dearly. Now it seems that we have made Tuesday friends. An even three and three, this time Alder gets to be the big kid, by four months. But they are weekly friends, which makes them special in my book. As a kid we had another family that we would have dinner with every Thursday. It would be the two families and who ever from the anthropologist seminars wanted to join in. They were late nights filled with voices that I would drift off to on a blanket in the corner of the dinning room of either home.

I'm happy you made some new weekly friends. It must have been hard to leave your old gang. I hope Alder and his new friends have lots of fun growing together.

It sounds like a wonderful time to have as a memory.
